Imagine the feelings when you realize your child is not developing normally. Imagine the frustration and confusion when you find out that the help and services you most desperately need for your child will not be available for one, two, and in some cases five years.
No parent should have to go through this! No child should be denied access to immediate services and programs. This was the beginnings of NYFAC.
Five families got together and vowed to support, to educate, and to assist each other to get through the tough times, the paperwork, and seemingly endless journey on the road to accessing help for their child. On July 2nd 1998 these five families decided to open the doors to others to provide them with the information they had learned. within one year NYFAC grew to over 100 families. Currently NYFAC serves any family within New York that has a child with a developmental disability. Our doors are open to any member, friend, professional, or student who wants to learn, to develop and to grow.
Since its inception, NYFAC has developed and instituted a wide variety of programs and services. NYFAC is recognized as a leader worldwide in the development of training materials for professionals working with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
